One of the highest paid defensive players in the NFL is being sought after by the police. Washington Redskins’ defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is BACK in the headlines! And it isn’t for anything good. Albert Haynesworth has been charged with simple assault after he allegedly “struck” a 38-year-old man driving a Honda Civic in Washington D.C. on Wednesday (Feb.2)
According to the Washington Post, the Honda driver felt Haynesworth was tailgating him on the Fairfax County Parkway and issued a “non verbal hand gesture” … aka “he gave him the finger.”
At some point the two cars came to a stop at a red light and Albert got out and, after the two exchanged words, allegedly assaulted the other man. Haynesworth allegedly got back into his vehicle and drove away.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Haynesworth’s arrest — and cops say the NFL star is planning to turn himself in to authorities next week.
Haynesworth was just in the headlines last month after a judge dismissed a lawsuit against him filed by a woman seeking child support for a child she believes to be his. (Read that story here).
